The best liquid eyeliner from the drugstore!

Some like gels others prefer powders or pencils I love liquid eyeliners. While searching for the perfect liquid eyeliner I have tried a lot of them out and ended up falling in love with the Catrice “liquid eyeliner” in “01 Dating Joe Black”. In fact I love this so much I have repurchased it probably 10 times over the last 3 years. 
Here is why:
- The felt tip is not too soft nor too rigid, making it very easy to draw a precise wing in seconds
- The black is an intense semi matt jet black, no need to layer the product

- The liner lasts all day. Obviously this is not a waterproof version, hence if it rains or if your eyes get wet it will smudge. For everyday wear however, it’s perfect
- The value for money is amazing. Compared to high end liquid eyeliners that I have tried and liked, this one is a steal as it retails for 3,45 € for 1,7ml (Urban Decay Liquid Liner retails for 1,7ml for 20,00 Euros; Mac Superslick Eyeliner 1,8ml for 22 Euros and Kat Van D Tattoo Liner 0,7ml for 20,00 Dollars)
If you are looking for a liquid eyeliner I can honestly recommend you the Catrice “liquid eyeliner” in “01 Dating Joe Black”. It’s been my go-to eyeliner for the last two maybe even three years (like you can see in some make-up empties posts herehere and here). Its super easy to use, I love the precise tip and the value for money couldn’t be better.
Seriously if you haven’t tried it out thus far, you need to go get it!
Have you tried the Catrice “liquid eyeliner”?
How did you like it?

Monthly Empties: December 2016

Another month has passed which means another empties post is just around the corner..

Dove “1min Intense Repair” conditioner // would repurchase
You have probably seen this in a couple of empties. I love this intense repair mask and will continue to repurchase.

Litamin “Buttermilk & lemon” peeling // would repurchase
I like that the peeling doesn’t feel too harsh on my skin, thanks to the finely milled peeling seeds. For someone with sensitive skin, you should try this one out. The buttermilk lemon scent was great, especially over summer.

Nivea soft cream // would repurchase
I absolutely love this cream. I remember that when I was younger I would either use this or the “bebe” body lotion. It nourishes my skin very well, absorbs quickly and the scent is amazing. Must try!

Essence acetone-free nail polish remover // would repurchase
This is my favorite acetone free nail polish remover. It does the job perfectly without drying up my nails.

Balea Beauty Effect Hyaluronic Booster // might repurchase
I ended up using it on my entire face instead of just my eyes. I can’t decide whether I would repurchase this or not as I am not sure it did something to my skin.

Fa cream and oil “coconut & sheabutter” bodywash // wont repurchase

I didn’t like the scent under the shower. It smelled very heavily perfumed and I prefer fruitier and/or fresh scents. I’m glad this is done.

Guhl "Feuchtigkeitsaufbau“(moisture) conditioner // wont repurchase
I have been wanting to try this line out for a while so a couple of months ago I finally decided to purchase the shampoo and conditioner. While they were not bad I cannot say they were great either and for around 4 Euros I would have expected more.
Guhl "Tiefenaufbau“(moisture) hair treatment // wont repurchase 
Again, I expected more. This had no effect on my hair whatsoever so I won’t be repurchasing it.
What have you used up this month?

BUY or SKIP: Balea "Reinigungsöl" Cleansing Oil

I am a big fan of cleansing oils. I used to take off my makeup with wipes but ever since I discovered the magic of oils I have been a big fan. Naturally when I heard about the Balea one (available at the German drugstore "dm") I had to give it a try.

Price: 2,50
Contains: 100ml
Available at: dm


If you are looking for a cleansing oil that offers a good value for money, then look no further you have found one, BUY! This is the cheapest cleansing oil I have tried thus far and I must admit that it works just as well as more expensive ones.
The product has no alcohol, conservatives or perfumes, perfect for those of you who have a sensitive skin. BUY!
If you like cleansing oils but hate that blurriness just after taking your make-up off, then give this one a try (BUY!). I honestly had no problems with the oil getting into my eyes and causing that blurry effect that I have had with other ones.
As the product has 100ml it is very convenient for travelling, BUY! What I love about it, is that it removes all of your make-up you don´t need to pack any additional products with you.
A little note on the side: If you are wearing a heavy eye makeup or waterproof mascara you might need to use a bit more product. I don’t mind that at all, because for 2,50 I don’t mind having to use a bit more product (I usually use 5-6 pumps then to get the job done).
